NAME OF APPLICANT:  Plaquemine Point Shipyard, c/o Tim Kimmel of Providence Engineering and Environmental Group, LLC., 1201 Main Street, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70802. 

LOCATION OF WORK:  In the Mississippi River, LDB, River Mile 208.5 on and west of LA Highway 991 in Sunshine, Louisiana, Iberville Parish, within the Mississippi River Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070100), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 30.293418N, Longitude -91.224211W).    

The work described below was partially completed prior to obtaining a Department of the Army permit and was in violation of Section 301 of the Clean Water Act.  All legal issues concerning the unauthorized work have since been deferred.

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The original permanent mooring for the drydock, shop, and access barges described herein was previously authorized as LMNOD Mississippi River 1046 to Baton Rouge Marine Repair and Drydock, Inc. on June 25, 1979, and modified to include 7 anchor pilings for additional barge fleeting on May 20, 1983.  Additional structures were subsequently installed without authorization which include a second flotilla and appurtenant shipyard and spoil pits. The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to bring the unauthorized structures into compliance as well as to deposit spoil material to expand operations to include commercial sale of dredged sand. Approximately 14,000 cubic yards of dredged material would be removed annually from 18.8 acres of waterbottoms and approx. 6.4 acres of batture would continue to be used for the spoil placement and sand sale operation. Approx. 1.6 acres of traditionally navigable waters would be impacted by the structures for the drydock facilities.
